As for helping out CONCACAF brethren, it doesn't really matter because those guys would find jobs in Colombia, Mexico and other lower tier Latin American leagues.
They would find work, sure. But I don't think they would improve to the point where they are now.
How many Americans are on MLS rosters? How many Americans are in MLS starting lineups? What about other CA countries?
I'm asking, because I honestly don't know. I didn't watch as much MLS last season.
ETA: yes, I know I'm a terrible fan. I like MLS, I'm just don't have infinite time at my disposal to watch soccer like I did in college.
